What, in your opinion, is the Best part of Giant Bomb?
compare it to other gaming sites if you want. (Gamespot being the most obvious)

Mine: The wiki format, allowing all games to have large descriptions and lots of screenshots. compared to Gamespot, where a game released many years ago is still described as
"Action Game: released in 2003"

The list and editing feature.

The most innovative one I think, is the wiki section. Especially since it isn't just games alone that they have, but I don't use it frequent enough. Ability to add your own images (and literally) to all games. It certainly is a very awesome section, if you are very dedicated to it.

Wiki > Gamespaces
GB Forums < GS Forums

The wiki pages for certain, they are the best part of Giant Bomb

First part of that statement: totally agree.
Second part: you're out of you goddamn mind.

Like the original poster says, the fact that older games can get some love and attention.

Oh ok, so forums without features are now better than forums with tons of them?

I really STILL would like to know how you guys are making money from this.  But if you haven't said yet, I guess you don't want to, at least for now.  Glad to hear that as your response though.

As for my favorite feature: Love the editing tools, reviews and forum, but my enjoyment of the Bombcast tops them all.

Definitely the databases and the Wikipedia style of editing.

Agreed
Mods seem much more friendly here
#38 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

Aside from the obvious wiki pages, I like the fact that there are forums for everything. Although this can result in similar posts in two different forums, I think in the future GiantBomb can combine certain forums together. (Ex: PS3 and PSN).
